WASHINGTON, March 24. /TASS/. A senior Pentagon official called for an extensive government strategy to counter Russia’s alleged information warfare against the United States and its allies.
When asked by Republican senator John McCain on whether Russia’s information policy can be viewed as a type of "warfare," Army Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, commander of US European Command and NATO's supreme allied commander for Europe, replied "I’m sure it is."
"It’s their asymmetric approach," he added.
"What we really need is a whole-of government approach, a whole-of government information campaign of which I’m a small part of," he said before the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday, adding that Washington requires a "government strategy" on the issue.
"I've seen the influence of Russia of late - increased influence in terms of association and perhaps even supply to the Taliban," he added, without elaborating on the type of support and how direct Russia’s alleged role was.
He also accused Russia of failing to duly notify the Western partners of some of its military drills which "breached" the existing bilateral and international agreements.
